I have called Maytag's toll free number and researched whether or not there has been a recall on this model. There are other customers that have had the same problem, and Maytag is aware of the plastic hinges breaking, but there is no recall.

It is too early for a class action lawsuit; however the front load Maytag washers were having similar problems less than three years ago. Spending $400 plus labor to have this 21 month old Maytag Bravo top load washer repaired doesn't make sense. Are there any other customers facing this or do you have any suggestions other than purchasing another brand of top load washer or keep pouring money into this Maytag washer?

Thanks.



Hello Joy. The complete model and serial numbers of the washer could help you and others to find solution.
Thank you, Gene.

We are having the same problem we only had our top load Maytag washer for about 2 years and like everyone else the hinges has cracked on the left side and it take me a while to get my machine to start washing. Maytag need to do something about this problem. We paid a good price for the set. We all need help with this problem.

This has also just happened to me! I purchased Maytag because my mother used to sell them and they had a great reputation. If I was worried about anything going, it would have been the motor and that came with a good guarantee.

I'm a one person household and only use the machine about every 2 weeks or so and use it gently. I purchased in Dec., 2019 so it is less than 3 years old.

This is beyond disgraceful, with so many having the same issues.
